Spring Watch: It’s A Badger

by Mars

We woke up this morning to several animal notifications from our Netatmo smart security camera. When we reviewed the footage we were pleasantly surprised to have our first ever badger sighting.

We’ve posted the footage of the badger helping himself to the seeds we put out for the robins, pheasants and birds, and you can enjoy the video while listening to Pete Stewart’s song Brushes.

What is so excellent about this camera from Netatmo is that it has loads of settings and options, so we have it set to record and capture wildlife at night using its night mode only. When it detects animals, it doesn’t turn the security light on so which means that it didn’t disturb the badger during its midnight feast.

They are really great. Don’t know much about them to be honest. I know they’re omnivores and can be a tad aggressive.

In respect of the RHI scheme for ASH system has anyone made a successful application in a new build home?

I am being told as our builder was technically the first owner we are not eligible for the scheme.

Unable to contact Ofgem at the moment.

Many thanks

Good afternoon Sue. That just doesn’t sound right. As a homeowner, I’m guessing you’ve paid for that pump and it wasn’t gifted to you, so you must surely be entitled to the RHI payments. If we sold up and moved, the new owners will continue to get payments for the remaining years left. Something doesn’t sound right there. Look forward to an update once you are able to get hold of Ofgem.

I put the feelers out today on this, and got this feedback a short while ago: “That is correct unless the build was done for you by the builder.”

I’m really surprised about this.
